Duck Roast ( Amma Special )

Duck Roast ( Amma Special ) is only my favourite dish from my Childhood .
In each family recipe for Duck Roast is really different, some uses Shallots instead of Onions & even the usage of Spices will be very different .
You can also try my another version of Whole Duck Roast ………..
Ingredients needed to make Duck Roast :
1 Duck , cleaned & sliced into big pieces ( don’t remove the skin )

3tbsp Coriander Powder

1tbsp Chilli Powder

1tsp Turmeric

2tbsp Garam Masala

Black Pepper Powder

2tbsp Ginger, grated

5cloves of Garlic, crushed

2-3 Green Chillies

Curry Leaves


3 large Onion, thinly sliced

Oil for frying

Method :

In a big pan mix together  Duck pieces, Coriander Powder, Chilli Powder, Turmeric Powder, Garam Masala , Black Pepper Powder, grated Ginger, grated  Garlic, Green Chillies, Curry Leaves & Salt .

Cover the pan with a tight lid  & cook the Duck .

Stir occasionally .

When Duck is cooked trough, fry them in Oil until it turns golden brown in colour .

When all the Duck pieces are fried, into the leftover Oil add thinly sliced Onions .

Sauté until Onion turns golden brown in colour .

Carefully pour the gravy into the fried Onions & allow the gravy to cook & reduce down a little .

You can mix fried Duck into the gravy, but I always pour Gravy on top of the Duck only before serving  otherwise its crispy texture will go .

Place the Duck pieces in the plate & pour the gravy on  top of Duck .

Serve it hot with Rice or Roti or even with Bread .

Enjoy !!!!!!!!!


*Notes :

While cutting the Duck I saved all the extra skins & cooked it along with the gravy .

Then fry each skin pieces until its  very crispy .

Serve it hot as an Appetizer .

My son love  Fried Duck Skin .
